Together with the districts of Dänischburg , Rangenberg and Wallberg, Siems forms district 27 in the Lübeck district of Kücknitz . Its past, like that of the entire district, is shaped by the heavy industry that existed in the 20th century (blast furnace, shipyard, oil mill, power station).


The district is located on the northern bank of the Trave, not far from the Herrentunnel . Siems was completely severed by the construction of the Federal Motorway 226 in the 1970s. The associated bank of the Trave is almost completely built over by industrial settlements.

The district road K9, the Siemser Landstrasse, which is the main traffic axis, runs through Siems. It can be taken as a rough dividing line between residential buildings and industrial areas.

Siems is limited to the south by the Trave. The forest area Waldhusen connects to the north. Here you can also find a moor area just before the start of the forest. To the west follows the district of Dänischburg, where a Villeroy & Boch factory was operated until the 1990s; to the east the Herrenwyk district; also characterized by strong industry. In the northeast of Siems are the districts of Rangenberg and Wallberg. They are purely residential areas.

Former industrial settlements

Triangle work

In the west, the triangle factory was founded in the 1960s. It produced particle board in the ten years of its existence. The delivery took place via the Trave. The plant had its own quay for this purpose. The site has been an unused industrial wasteland since the plant was closed in the 1970s. There were brief plans in the 1970s to build a steel mill there. At this point in time, the blast furnace plant in Herrenwyk was still in full operation. The plans were never realized.

Oil mill

The oil mill in Lübeck-Siems

It was built in 1905 and was in operation until 1928. The company was founded as GEA Asmus and later transformed into a stock corporation, Lübecker Ölmühle AG . In the mill, oil was made from rapeseed and rape, linseed , cottonseed and peanuts. In the Lübeck oil mill, the seeds are heated, crushed and then pressed. Steam engines were used to heat and drive the presses . It was a pure oil press, a chemical extraction of the oil with z. B. Hexane never took place. This technical inferiority yielded only 30,000 tons of oil per year and is one of the reasons for the early shutdown in 1928.

After that, the buildings served as a warehouse until 1999. The two-story warehouses were demolished. The six-storey warehouse was left standing at the pressure of the public monument protection office. The building was used as a nightclub in 2001. The party had to be stopped after only one year, as structural engineers no longer wanted to guarantee structural safety. The Container Terminal Lübeck (CTL) was built on the site in 2003 and stopped handling containers in 2009. Today the area is owned by the company Hans Lehmann KG .

Trivia: The model railway manufacturer Fleischmann had a "Tank car Lübeck Oelmühle of the Prussian State Railways" in its program.

Shipyard of Gebr. Goedhart AG

In 1919 the Düsseldorf company Travewerk of the Goedhart brothers established a shipyard. It specialized in dredging work at sea and in rivers and ports. The shipyard was closed in 1928, but the site was still used. The Lübeck location was the headquarters of the AG from 1948 to 1962. The site was sold in 1962 to Hans Lehmann KG , which opened “Lehmannkai 1” on the site.

Coal power plant of the NWK (later Prussia Elektra)

The power plant was built in 1942. The construction contractor Erich Trautsch and the civil engineer Klaus Pieper developed the Trautsch-Pieper process during construction . This was later used for the reconstruction of the Lübeck churches (Petrikirche, Dom and Marienkirche).

In 1951 the power plant was expanded. The expansion was carried out by Wayss & Freytag. }} At the beginning of the 90s the last burner was also switched off. The complete demolition followed, which dragged on for several years. Initially, a new power plant with district heating was planned, which should go into operation in 2002. After initial delays, the project was completely discontinued. Only one transformer station was implemented for the Baltic Cable and the 380 kV line (see following section). The rest of the power plant site is, like the triangle site, an industrial wasteland.

Container Terminal Lübeck (CTL)

The Container Terminal Lübeck (CTL) was built on the former site of the oil mill and opened in 2003. The CTL was operated by Hamburger Hafen und Logistik (HHLA) and container shuttle trains were set up between Hamburg and Lübeck. At the end of July 2009 both were given up due to the sharp decline in container traffic to the east. In the first five months of the year, throughput collapsed by 70% to just 8,000 TEU . The container cranes were sold to Steinweg Handelsveem BV in Amsterdam and are now located there in the Westhaven and are used for inland waterway handling .

In April 2010 the area was bought by the company Hans Lehmann KG, which has been based in Lübeck-Siems for a long time . However, container operations were not resumed. The site was renamed CTL Cargo Terminal Lehmann . The site was primarily a transshipment point for wood from Scandinavia. Since January 2014 ships of the Finnish shipping company Containerships have been handled here, which had moved the call from Hamburg to Lübeck. The liner service initially ran on a weekly basis and connected Lübeck with Helsinki, Klaipeda and St. Petersburg. Since May 2015, Kotka and Riga have been served on a weekly basis. Two departures a week are offered on the Helsinki and St. Petersburg route. Two Terex Gottwald mobile cranes with a load capacity of 125 t are used for the handling.

Siems today

Besides the cargo terminal, there is little industry left in Siems.

Hans Lehmann KG

The company, founded in 1925, bought the site of the former Goedhardt Brothers shipyard in 1962. There was the "Lehmannkai 1", in which up to now (as of 2014) mixed concrete manufactured and sea gravel is processed. In the 1990s, the company expanded its port facilities (and thus its activities in the shipping and port operations sector), including on the former metalworks site in neighboring Lübeck-Herrenwyk. "Lehmannkai 2" was built on the site of the former Flender shipyard. In 2010 Lehmann bought the Container Terminal Lübeck (CTL) (see above), today containers are handled there under the name “CTL Cargo Terminal Lehmann” with two mobile cranes and three reach stackers .

Siems and the energy supply

In Siems (and in Herrenwyk) there were coal-fired power plants up until the beginning of the 1990s , which supplied the region with energy. They were switched off and completely demolished due to stricter environmental regulations.

Today there is a substation on the site . A 380 kV line comes from Lübeck- Herrenwyk , which takes the power of the Baltic Cable . This line was to be continued to the Krümmel nuclear power plant , but no construction was carried out due to the difficult approval process. The current was stepped down to 110 kV in Siems. Due to the increased transmission losses , the Baltic Cable coming from Sweden could only be operated with an output of 372 MW instead of the planned nominal output of 600 MW.

In 2004, a static reactive power compensator (SVC) designed and built by Siemens and a 220 kV underground cable to the Lübeck-Bargerbrück substation were put into operation in the Lübeck-Siems substation, which now allows a transmission capacity of 600 MW.

From the transformer station in Lübeck-Siems, two 110 kV three-phase circuits also lead to the 110 kV / 10 kV transformer station of Stadtwerke Lübeck Netz GmbH in Lübeck-Herrenwyk. This substation is located next to the area of ​​the converter station, but there is no 380 kV / 110 kV transformer, so the supply is from Lübeck-Siems. The circuits of the 110 kV line from the Lübeck-Siems substation to the Lübeck-Herrenwyk substation are laid on the same masts together with the 380 kV circuits from Lübeck-Siems to Lübeck-Herrenwyk, with the 110 kV circuits on the the lowest and the 380 kV circuits are on the uppermost cross members.


  1. As far as I could learn from local residents, a company had promised investments, raised more funds, and then disappeared. Whether it is really a subsidy fraud would have to be clarified through research in the Lübeck archives.
